I paint in acrylic and I do predominantly Judaic Folk Art. My art was once described as 'endearing and whimsical' it portrays both traditional and modern Jewish life, Moments of most Holy to those seemingly mundane from the Lifting up of the Torah Scroll to kneading bread.
I am visually impaired and mobility impaired as well, having arthritis in about all my joints. I have to use thicker brushes to hold on to and some days I just cant paint, so I make the most of days I can. Until recently I lived in assisted living but this month (Jan 2012) I moved into my own independent apartment. I am loving it so far.
I am visually impaired and besides weak eyes I see double. I paint detail (by usually avoiding it lol) with a lighted magnifying lens from my eye specialist.
I began painting in September of 2003 to cope with grief. My brother, Jacob, died on Rosh Hashanah morning.
I have lived in assisted living type homes for a long time, and my health was too poor and I was too poor to even try to get shows or do contests etc. I will be trying some of this as I improve and my health has been improving.
I sign all my paintings by my Hebrew name, Adinah, which I go by so have used it in contact info. However, my legal name is Adelle and some of my older paintings which some I still have, though not many, are signed Adelle John, and very very old ones signed Adelle Jean, which when I first started painting I signed that to give myself a totally 'French' name. I will keep signing Adinah now, I am happy with that.
I hope my art is some way transcends the various different branches of Judaism because in my heart I know that although we may not all see eye to eye, we are all ONE people--Am Yisrael Echad! G-d bless you and please come again.
